de translation improvements

Please find attached a patch against source:/sites/rails_port/config/locales/de.yml@15440 which tries to improve the german translation. I noticed that hyphens were often missing and corrected all the things I spooted as I was skimming through the file.

An idea that may be worth discussing and that I did not incorporate into the patch: Maybe we should make the translations as similar to Wikipedia as possible. This would mean for example that "History" should be translated with "Versionen/Autoren?" instead of "Vergangenheit" oder "Historie".

I oppose using Wikipedias translation for "History" because we don't have the concept of versioning an area on a map. I'd rather suggest using "Änderungsprotokoll" as the most descriptive way to tell the user what he should expect behind that link.

This is a collaborative attempt on it. Several users from the #osm-de IRC channel worked on it. We did not reach the end yet but it seems a good idea to share it already. Buerste, telegnom, malenki, C0bra, John07 and HannesHH worked on it (unless I forget someone). We will continue brainstorming tomorrow in the late afternoon or evening.

I am reopening this for discussion of further improvements.
